Hi. This could be due to back sprain. Take rest. Avoid forward bending & heavy weight. Use lumbo sacral belt while walking & standing. Avoid prolonged standing & sitting on same place for hrs. Start gentle back care exercises. Can visit physiotherapy center for ultrasonic therapy & to learn proper exercises. TC.

As per the ayurvedic treatment protocol, first avoid sour tasted and fermented food. You can gently apply mahanarayan tailam follwed by hot and cold fomentation. To relieve pain you can have trayodashang guggulu. Feel free to ask for more.

I am 29 years old and I am having pain in both my shoulders. This started a couple of years ago while I was playing cricket and threw the ball. I thought it would be a muscular pain and would go away but now when I started playing cricket the pain is back and I am not able to even bowl.

Throwing sometime causes supraspinatus tendinitis which can be tested through some physical test when you visit to any physiotherapist. Since pain is almost 2 yrs old that means it will not go by itself kindly visit your therapist as soon as possible.

To maintain strength abd reduce pain do knee exercises called isometrics if quad (write name of knee exercise in utube to know procedure of exercise) - to reduce pain do contrast bath by dipping and squeezing one hand towel in hit water, apply to affected area, when it cools down immediately apply another hand towel in cold ice water repeat this for 10 - 15 min for 2- 3 times (specially at night)

My wife has accute knee pain in both the legs. She is 55 years old. BP and sugar is under control. Can you suggest me the remedies

Your wife most probably has osteoarthritis with an acute inflammatory flare. The diagnosis needs to confirmed. If in fact she has osteoarthritis then she needs to be assessed for comorbidities and needs to be put on an intensive exercise program with control of pain using safe pain modfiying medications instead of pain killers. This can be done best by a rheumatologist. If you let me know where you live I can give you a refernce of a nearby rheumatologist. You can contact me via my website www.Rheumatologybangalore.Com You can get more information regarding osteoarthritis from the document below.

Towel hamstring stretch lie on the back, supporting the thigh with the hand or with a towel wrapped around it. Slowly straighten the knee until a stretch is felt in the back of the thigh, trying to get the bottom of the foot to face the ceiling, one leg at a time. Hold the position initially for 10 seconds, and gradually work up to 20 to 30 seconds. Seated hamstring stretch while sitting at the edge of a chair, straighten one leg in front of the body with the heel on the floor. Then, sit up straight and try pushing the navel towards the thigh without leaning the trunk of the body forwards. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds repeat 3 times for each leg.

Ankylosing Spondylitis - What Are The Causes?

MBBS, MD-Medicine, DM - Clinical Immunology
Rheumatologist, Jaipur
Ankylosing Spondylitis - What Are The Causes?

The human spine has 33 vertebrae. However, some conditions can fuse these vertebrae. Ankylosing Spondylitis is one such condition. This disease may also be known as AS or Bechterew's disease. It is an inflammatory disease that can make the spine less flexible by fusing the vertebrae of the lower back together. In some cases, it can also affect the rib cage and make it difficult to breathe. This disease typically affects more men as compared to women. Most patients begin showing symptoms in early adulthood.

Ankylosing Spondylitis affects the sacroiliac joints. These joints are located just above the tailbone. It causes inflammation of the spinal bones that in turn cause pain and stiffness. With time, this inflammation spreads to the entire spine and the vertebrae begin fusing together. This can make movement difficult and painful. In severe cases, it can also lead to the development of a hunchback. This disease also affects the other tissues of the body. For example, it can affect other joints and aggravate arthritis or affect organs such as the kidney, heart, lungs, and eyes.

A specific cause has not yet been identified for Ankylosing Spondylitis. However, studies show that genetic factors can be a trigger. In particular, the presence of the HLA-B27 gene increases a person’s risk of developing symptoms pertaining to this condition. However, it is important to note that merely the presence of this gene does not make Ankylosing Spondylitis inevitable. Other genes that are associated with this disease are ARTS1 and IL23R. These genes influence the functioning of the immune system. While it can affect people of all ages, adults are at a higher risk of suffering from this condition.

In many cases, the initial inflammation of the spine is due to a bacterial infection of microbial infection. Though the infection itself may be treated and cured, it may cause the immune system to react and trigger inflammation. Once activated, if the immune system cannot be turned off, this inflammation will continue and can trigger Ankylosing Spondylitis. In each case, the disease presents a unique pattern of progression.

There is presently no cure for this condition, but with an early diagnosis and treatment, the symptoms can be managed and progression can be slowed. This treatment usually takes the form of medication to relieve pain, inflammation and discomfort and physical therapy. Surgery cannot be used to treat Ankylosing Spondylitis but in cases where it has caused severe joint damage, surgery may be advised to replace the damaged joint. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Rheumatologist.

Is there any family history of r. A? you started your pain from right knee which doesn't seem to be the pain from r. A? still if you suspect, must have a blood test done. Also burn 50gms garlic and 50 gm ajwain in 250 ml of til oil. Filter it and daily massage your knee with it for 10-15mins, if there is no swelling. If pain is severe, take some ayurveda treatment.
